Another Weiss tree, this one is a Candle Christmas Tree with lots of interesting touches.

The tree measures 2 ½ inches high, 1 3/8 inches wide at its widest point. Festooned with sparkling stones as follows; Six yellow 5mm, Eight bright white 4mm, Eight deep green 3mm stones Three 6mm long baguettes each with a red round 2mm stone. (these are the candles and the flames)

Made to look like an old fashioned Christmas Tree, the stones are affixed to look like a heavily decorated 1900's parlor tree. Set on brushed golden metal to replicate wood and pine boughs it signals that the wearer “needs a little Christmas, right this very minuet”.

Condition: All surfaces are bright and reflective, all stones are present and bright. I can find no marks or scratches or blemish of any kind to tell you about. Pin action is good and the thumb clasp holds tight.

It is as wonderful to see as it was when it was first made. This is the quality of Weiss and the care of its previous owner.


The Estate sale was for items owned by William and Susan Ecenbarger.

William won the Pulitzer Prize for General news in 1980 for his outstanding coverage of the Three Mile Island nuclear accident coverage. (TMI to us locals) He was a reporter and and editor for the Philadelphia Inquirer in his day and also Freelanced with his work having been published in The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, Smithsonian Magazine, Esquire, Audubon and other leading newspapers and magazines.

He wrote historical books too; “Walkin' the Line: A Journey from Past to Present Along the Mason-Dixon”, published in 2000 and “Glory by the Wayside: The Old Churches of Hawaii which was co-authored by his wife Susan (who also did the principal photography for the book). This was released in 2008. He not only won the Pulitzer, but in his writing career he also won the George Polk Award, and the Lowell Thomas Travel Writer of the Year among many others.

I am assuming that Susan was the collector of the fabulous jewelry I saw there. Be sure to find the other offerings by Eisenberg, Weiss and Pell that I have for you from this sale here in my shop.
